Activity Night at Hope school gym will be Friday, Sept. 21. Grades 5 through 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. $4 per student. Food, movie, open gym, games and lots of fun.
Saturday, Sept. 22, Camden Hills High School is celebrating their annual homecoming with eight scheduled games and a giant free barbecue for all who attend.
Each year they honor a "fan of the day." This year they have decided to honor all youth athletes in the five towns. They would like to cordially invite all sports team members of any sports (school/club/recreation) to suit up and be a guest of honor. It does not matter what season the sport is played.
Ideally each group will have a coach or adult leader who can help get his/her team togetheer at the event. Each team will be recognized as they walk onto the main playing field at half time of the boys' soccer game. Steve Alex, Camden Hills Athletic director, will need every player/leader to meet him at a designated spot at around 1 p.m. Please feel free to contact Steve 236-7800, ext. 414, with any questions.

You never know. Last year the Midcoast Ladies Club had their September picnic at Ayer Park in Union. This year they decided to do the same thing but Mother Nature did not agree. Fourteen from the Ladies Club gathered at Hope Corner Fire Station instead.
A short business meeting was held. To start it off every one held a moment of silence for the firemen and others who were killed 11 years ago when the planes hit several buildings. Everyone told what we were doing, which was a mystery ride at the teen center on Knowlton Street in Camden.
The Ladies' next meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 9, with everyone gathering at the fire station. It was decided last year not to have a mystery ride at this meeting but several places have been found to hold one. So they will hold one. Time will be announced at a later date.
Then everyone told of what they had been doing during the summer months. Everyone agreed that they could do without the humid weather. Everyone brought their sandwich and beverage. Pot luck desserts were enjoyed. At the next meeting everyone should be bringing items for the big basket which will be filled up and donated to the fire department. The fire department will be selling raffle on this at the craft fair. If you are going by Charlotte Pease's house you can leave the items on her porch.
Last Thursday the Camden/Rockport High Class of 1958 started making plans for their 55th class reunion. It will be held Sept. 14, 2013. Next project will be to find a place to hold it.
